David Lynch on 1967 Philadelphia

“We lived cheap, but the city was full of fear. A kid was shot to death down the street … We were robbed twice, had windows shot out and a car stolen. The house was first broken into only three days after we moved in … The feeling was so close to extreme danger, and the fear was so intense. There was violence and hate and filth. But the biggest influence in my whole life was that city.”

Philip H. Moore, Philadelphia Postcard Photographer

I’m obsessed with this postcard photographer who worked during the first quarter of the last century around my hometown, and I’m trying to compile a catalog of his output. Wrote a page about it. Nerds and photography/postcard/local history obsessives only.
